Paragliding Discovery Holiday
Is Paragliding on your bucket list?
This one week holiday is designed for those who want to experience paragliding with some basic training and do some real high flying too.
4th-11th July 2020
Paragliding is the simplest and purest form of flying there is. The Paragliding Discovery Holiday is designed for complete beginners who wish to experience the sport of Paragliding. This is different from a training course in that you will be offered several tandem flights to get the full experience. You'll also participate in part of the elementary training where you'll be taught to handle the glider on the ground and make some short solo flights with an instructor on radio to assist. All our instructors are experienced and very current paraglider pilots who have flown all over the world, we live and breathe paragliding! The emphasis of this week is on fun and enjoyment, with theory being kept to a minimum. Should you find yourself in love with paragliding and want to learn more, we can use your Discovery Holiday as the basis to train you further, to the point where you can fly alone with an internationally recognised qualification.
We'll introduce you to the equipment, explain the basics of flight. You'll have a go at inflating the glider on the ground. Once you have mastered controlling the glider on the ground, which isn't as easy as it looks, you will be taught to take off and land correctly. Your first flights will be in a straight line and close to the ground. For those flights, you'll have a radio and instructors supervising to ensure your safety.
During the week, you'll have the opportunity to fly tandem from the big mountains.
You'll be offered at least 3 flights, each of which can be from 20 mins to 2hrs.
You'll be invited to take the controls to get a feel for what it takes. Plenty of opportunity to take photos and videos.
This holiday takes place near Sopot, in the Rose Valley of Bulgaria. You need to fly to Sofia or Plovdiv airport. We'll collect you on Saturday the 4th of July 2020 and we'll take you back to the airport on Saturday the 11th. Contact us before booking flights.
